Did I pick my spaghetti squash too soon?
I planted everything too close because I had low expectations so now my vines are all over the place. I had a spaghetti squash growing thru the tomato cages and the squash was growing several feet off the ground. When it looked huge, I decided to harvest it. It is over 6 lbs and 11" long - I thought this would be big enough but after reading the forums on when to harvest, I believe I harvested too soon. I didn't know if I could leave it hanging much longer and it was too high to brace. Can we still eat it?
I also have a pumpkin growing thru the tomato cages. The pumpkin started growing 3' off the ground. Last week, I braced it with 2 X 4's so it won't snap off too early but it's only 9" off the ground now. This one and the spaghetti squash are much bigger than the ones growing on the ground. Does anyone else have pumpkins and squash hanging from their tomato cages?
